'Tiny Houses of the Northeast'

“Tiny Houses of the Northeast,” a free program presented by Isa Bauer, will be held at 7 p.m.  Tuesday, April 25, at the Fiske Free Library.  The presentation focuses on the basics of planning and owning a small house on wheels — advantages, disadvantages, location, cost etc.

Bauer is the project manager and lead designer from Tiny Houses Northeast, a New England and ypper New York state tiny house design-build business. Bauer earned an M.A. in regional economic and social development with a concentration in sustainable development, including green building materials and construction method research. Bauer has owned a tiny house since she was 19, as do several of the Tiny Houses Northeast team.

The presentation will be followed by a question-and-answer session.

Sponsored by The Friends of the Fiske Free Library.
